Title: Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Reclassification of the Florida Manatee from Endangered to Threatened  
Abstract:

We will reclassify the manatee from endangered to threatened under the Endangered Species Act. We believe that a reduction in threats has resulted in an improvement in the species' status such that the endangered designation may no longer correctly reflect the current status of manatee.
